container technology.

Title:.... Hands-On With Docker Containers

Date:..... Tuesday, 05 November 2019

Time:..... 7:00 PM

Location:  Harper College, Building A, Room A238
 	   1200 W Algonquin Rd
 	   (North-east corner of Algonquin Rd. and Roselle Rd.)


Abstract (by our presenter):

Docker is an open-source engine that automates
the deployment of applications into containers.
Linux containers provide a mechanism for
isolating applications providing many of the
advantages of virtual machines with much less
overhead and near native performance.  In
addition to the virtualized container execution
environment, Docker adds a powerful and flexible
application deployment engine.

I'll provide an introduction to Docker
technology, describe how it can be used, what
it's good (and not good) for, and show how you
easy it is to get started.

The best way to understand this technology is to
try it yourself.  I'll show how easy it is to
install Docker, start containers for various
pre-canned applications, as well as create custom
images for your own use or to share with others.
